Happy Fright Night

Happy Halloween. I thought I should make a Halloween card today to get in the spirit. I used the tree and bats from Spooky Silhouettes and the pumpkins from So Grateful.
The challenge at Split Coast yesterday was to Get Cracking, so I decided to try the cracked glass technique, since I have never done that (at least not on purpose).

I sponged the background and then stamped the tree and bats with Black Stazon and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

The pumpkins were colored with Koh-i-noor pencils and blended with OMS. Then I cut them out and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I put the image in the freezer for a few minutes and then pulled it out and bent it a little to make the cracks. I had to do that several times before I could get enough cracks, because it kept warming up too fast. Why is it easy to get cracks in your embossing when you don't want them and hard when you do want them?

Below the main image panel is a layer of Green Galore and then Basic Black. The card base is Tango Tangerine.

Have a Spookacular evening and a happy weekend!

This is gorgeous! I'm gonna have to try that technique! I thought I needed a special liquid thing for that but I'll do it your way so I don't have to buy any new stuff!
